Better Your Sleeping Schedule

Better+Your+Sleeping+Schedule

Julia T., Co-Editor in Chief

During quarantine, it’s easy to get distracted by things such as your phone, and because of this, you have most likely have grown a terrible sleeping schedule (including going to sleep around 4 AM, and waking up around 1 PM). You might have not been taking online school seriously, either. Not completing the assignments and creating bad habits. Right now is the perfect time to get back on the same routine you had in school, or create an entirely new one. I dare you to put down your phone for the rest of the day. After putting your phone away, take your dog for a walk. You will find this very refreshing and your dog will love you for it, too. Then, go outside and put out a blanket and lay in the sun. This will give you the Vitamin D you haven’t gotten over the quarantine. Later, you can pick up your phone, reply to all of your messages, check Instagram, etc. After doing so, challenge yourself by doing a workout. Pick any workout video online and do your best to repeat what the instructor is doing. Next, try to put your phone away again and go relax. In the evening, drink herbal tea and try to stay away from the late-night snacks. Any food before bed will make falling asleep difficult or will make you wake up in the middle of the night sweaty. After you have done your iconic nightly routine, go lay down in bed and read a book. By doing these things, you will create a good sleeping schedule. Creating good schedules during this time might help to feel less stressed, more refreshed, and make you feel a little happier during this scary time.
